The A.M. Gorchakov School
About the school
We regard education as one of the most important aspects of a child's education and rearing and admit only children from families which share this belief and have high expectations for their children's education.
The main building was designed by Bryullov himself in 1837, and construction began that same year. The first floor is constructed of stone, the second of timber, and the building is covered by a gable-style roof. To the west of the main building, connected by a two-story wing, is a four-story brick tower, topped with an observation platform and a dome similar to that of an observatory. Not only was astronomical observation a hobby of Bryullov's, he was also the architect of St. Peterburg's Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory.
Gorchakov Memorial School views education as a vital component of purposeful societal development. Gorchakov adheres to all the state educational requirements and, at the same time, builds upon the best innovations from both Russian and foreign educational experience.

The School values its relationship with the parents of its pupils and encourages them to not only participate in discussions, but to actively be involved with and contribute to the educational policies of the School.
